Submission Guidelines

Agented submissions only, but unagented writers may book consultations (see below).


As a new addition from The Manuscript Academy, #MSWL’s educational sister company, we are now offering ten-minute e-consultations (ask about your query, your first page, why you’re getting form rejections–or just ask your general publishing questions) with a select group of our agents and editors. You’ll be able to pick from Skype, Hangouts, or a phone call–and, yes, this works internationally. Please see our FAQ, our step-by-step guide to booking your meeting, a list of participating agents and editors–and consider joining our Facebook group, a free, friendly community of writers cheering each other on through this process. You can also listen to interviews with many of our faculty members on our free podcast.

Please note: Meetings are posted once monthly, and then often sell out. If there are meetings available, you’ll see them bolded on the calendar below after clicking “Set Time Zone.”
